Hey so I'm kinda scared? Like bellamy left his heart behind and he's probably been all head for 6 years.. what if when he comes back he's not emotional anymore? He's shut off and maybe cold, having to survive up in space like that... man I'm nervous. One of the reasons I love bellamy so much is because he is the heart. But now... it seems that him and Clarke might've switched
Now need to be concerned, this actually seems to contradict what JRoth has stated about his goal for Bellamy’s journey in Season 5, see below:
“As Clarke says to him in the finale, he has to start to use his brain as well as his heart. He’s always been an impulsive, emotional, reactive person. And that’s what we love about him. He cares so deeply about his people, and he charges in blindly sometimes, and sometimes that gets him in trouble as Clarke says in the episode. He needed to start finding a unity of both of those organs for lack of a better word. And that’s what he’ll do now. He’ll be forced to do that on some level without Clarke. And we’ll hopefully see him becoming a fully realized head and heart leader that I think he’s destined to become in Season 5.”
I also think that six years is more than enough time for Bellamy to heal, guys. He loves Clarke, absolutely and her death will always be a wound, but after a time, just as you heal in real life when someone you love dies, Bellamy would too. I don’t think we’re going to come into the Season to a broken Bellamy, just as we didn’t see a broken Clarke in the finale.
Bellamy and Clarke’s journeys have always mirrored one another, they’re almost always in the same emotional place at the beginning and the end of a Season, even if it’s not expressed in the same way:
Season 1: Bellamy and Clarke are both struggling to gain leadership positions, they discover they can work together, and then they both wind up having to make sacrifices (Clarke closing the door on Bellamy and Finn and Bellamy making the sacrifice of his person).
Season 2: Bellamy and Clarke separated, both held captive (Bellamy by Tristan, Clarke in the Mountain, both save someone on/near a cliff, Clarke with Anya, Bellamy with Mel, both save someone who they care about in the finale (Bellamy-Octavia, Clarke-Abby).
Season 3: Bellamy and Clarke are both emotionally devastated by their actions in Mt. Weather, they are both pulling away from their people (Bellamy-emotionally, Clarke physically), both have love interests who die (Bellamy-Gina, Clarke-L/xa), both begin healing in 3B.
Season 4: Bellamy and Clarke are very much in sync this Season, but in the Season opener, they are both shown struggling with the loss of a love interest, they both deal with the weight of deciding who lives or dies, they both have moments of absolute desolation, and in the finale (before the time jump), both are saddened.
Based on their journeys being consistently paralleled, I can only assume that Clarke’s mental state after 6 years will mirror Bellamy’s. I hope this helps!
